Solution to NBA One and Down

Brian Cook of mgoblog on NBA one-and-done:

John Gasaway was talking about this on twitter recently and I chimed in to agree: the NBA should move to the NHL model where everyone’s eligible out of high school whether they opt in or not. NBA teams could then draft players without having to sign them, and sign them when they thought they could be a useful addition to the roster. You could expand the draft to five rounds and give NBA fans another reason to watch college basketball. The kids who aren’t ready but keep declaring for the draft willy-nilly would evaporate. It would be a win for everyone.

Sign me up for this. It seems like such an obvious solution. I am sure it will never happen, but we can dream.
